Indoor Air Quality Inspection
Ambient Aire is Pest-OPS indoor air quality inspection service. We specialize in testing and measuring the quality of indoor environments. As a Knoxville IAQ certified company, we offer a variety of services to improve Knoxville indoor air quality, including air quality inspection, laboratory testing, consulting, and duct cleaning. Our entry-level inspection is the IAQ Phase I Investigation and is designed to examine and identify problems within the indoor environment, draw conclusions based on the findings, and provide a list of recommendations for an effective solution.
We focus on moisture, drainage, ventilation, and other factors that contribute to mold growth. We can also inspect for allergens, including dust mites, pollen, spores, and other airborne particles. We then provide a complete report with specific explanations and instructions to improve the air quality of your home or office.
The complete IAQ Investigation encompasses a far greater scope than just measurements of indoor pollutants: we provide a detailed inspection and evaluation of the building systems. We begin by visually inspecting the internal components and chambers of the air handling units and assess to the filtration systems.
The Environmental Protection Agency reports that indoor air quality is often five times more polluted than outside air. The largest single action to improve your Knoxville indoor air quality is to remove the source materials from the air system. An examination is completed of a representative sampling of the ductwork systems either visually or with a high-resolution optical duct camera and video tape system, which included video monitoring of air ducts to ensure the cleanest possible solution. We also collect microbial samples from surfaces, as well as air samples in representative areas, including the roof, AC units, front, rear (loading dock), and office areas of the building. We test the air samples for carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, and hydrocarbons. After the inspection and cleaning, we provide a before and after video of the duct in which clients can see our results.
At the conclusion of your Knoxville indoor air quality inspection, the environmental readings are recorded, and the samples collected and evaluated in our laboratory. The results are compared to regulatory and industry standards and guidelines. Detailed reports are then available about healthcare concerns.
